What to Wear for a Fall Maternity Shoot
Having professional photos for huge milestone events in my life have and will always be important to me. I love being able to look back at those times in my life that always bring a huge smile to my face. This may or may not be our last baby so I wanted them to be very special! I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way they turned out 🙂
I understand the struggle of being pregnant and finding that perfect outfit. It can be especially tricky when figuring out what to wear during the different seasons of the year. So I wanted to share some ideas on what to wear during a fall maternity shoot.
If you follow me on Instagram you already got a sneak peek of this stunning dress from Vici Dolls I choose for my maternity shoot. I had so many people ask about the dress and I’m so happy you all love it as much as I do! I chose this dress from Vici Dolls because it had everything I was looking for to fit the feel of the shoot I was going for, Glam with a touch of girly. Since we are in the fall months I thought the color schemes of this dress was absolutely perfect! It had all the fall Hughes and a touch of pink to celebrate our baby girl to be! It also comes in a stunning pink color here, This would be perfect for a spring or summer maternity shoot!
When planning a maternity shoot, you want to feel your utmost beautiful and comfortable! You will have these photos to look back on for many years to come! So be sure you choose a dress that fits you. I personally haven’t felt comfortable in form-fitting dresses this pregnancy, so I knew I wanted something flowy and long.
Think of the color scheme you want to stay within, this also comes in hand when picking a location. We chose to shoot at this stunning Hotel on St.Pete Beach. It has a South beach feel, but also a touch of vintage glam. So I knew this dress would be perfect because it would stand out along side the pink coloring of the hotel.
Choosing a location can be difficult, but your photographer should be able to help resolve this problem for you. To make it a bit easier think of the feel of the shoot you are going for, which also coincides with the time of year. Since we live in Florida we basically can choose just about anything. If you live up north and experience cooler weather, maybe you want more of a whimsical fall look, so many options. This dress would also looks stunning with fall foliage draped all around you ( thinking about how those photos would turn out already makes me a little jealous 😉 Add a faux fur jacket for a more winter time look!
Choose a photographer you feel comfortable with, don’t be afraid to call several photographers and meet with them and see how you all click. You want to not only feel comfortable with what you are wearing but also feel comfortable posing in front of a camera for an hour or longer. This to me is crucial, if you don’t feel comfortable with your photographer you will be able to tell through the pictures, so take your time choosing! I am beyond lucky to work with an amazing photographer who shoots majority of my looks for the blog. Please be sure to check them out here!

Hey Friends! Happy Tuesday, I can’t believe I’m Officially in my third trimester and will be 33 weeks this Thursday, needles to say its kicking me in the bootay! Any tips from fellow mamas out there on how you survived the third Trimester with a toddler? Although I am in my third trimester, I wanted to share some insight into my second trimester first!
Before getting into the nitty gritty of this post, I wanted to share this gorgeous fall inspired dress from Pinkblush Maternity.It is a non-maternity dress and I’m wearing a size small for reference. I absolutely love the floral pattern of this dress! This would be the perfect dress for a baby shower, bridal shower or Family photos! I love that you can wear its simply by itself with a pair of heels for a dressier occasion or dress it down with some booties and hat for a fun day of fall activities! The options are endless.
For those of you that have been following me, know that I don’t buy much maternity items when it comes to tops and dresses. I typically like to buy non-maternity and size up one so i can continue to wear it post pregnancy. This` dress is a total must have weather pregnant or not. Pink Blush Maternity has quickly turned into one of my favorite online boutiques. They also have the cutest non maternity clothes and mommy and me! Being a girl mom this is everything! If you have not shopped with them yet, be sure to check them out here! I promise you will have a very hard time not finding something you love!
Second Trimester Bumpupdate: I really enjoy the second trimester because at least for me and from what I hear, most women feel their absolute best during this stage of pregnancy! The first trimester your body Is preparing and adjusting to creating a baby, your hormones are out of wack and for me I ALWAYS get sick and my headaches are like no other! The Third Trimester, you just want that baby out! But, the Second Trimester is a “walk in the park” compared to the beginning stages and end stages of pregnancy. For any of my expecting moms out there, what is your favorite trimester?
Cravings: SWEEETs of any kind, I have always had a sweet tooth, but pregnancy really has kicked it into full gear!
How are we Feeling: Second trimester Weeks 14-28. The Second trimester is always my favorite stage of pregnancy. I start to fee like myself again. During this stage I finally feel “Normal” again! My energy is back up, my mood swings “subside” and for many, you feel like you have that pregnancy glow. Having a toddler this time around really did make a HUGE difference. Although, I felt good I was much more tired everyday. When you have another baby to care for, there is no down time!
Have you got a Bump and Feeling anything yet? Oh yes I have a bump! That second baby bump really makes an early appearance! I Feel lots of kicks but sometimes uncomfortable pressure when she is very low down. Currently she is still breech, and I’m praying she turns on her own! Any at home “remedies” That worked for you ladies with breech babies?
How are you Sleeping? Surprisingly, sleep has not been that bad, I think my exhaustion takes over my body and once my head hits that pillow I’m out till the next morning! There are of course nights of tossing and turning and trying to find that “right’ Position. But, I have to say I’m lucky when it comes to sleeping!
Names you like: We have two names we Love and can’t decide on, We decided to keep the name a surprise until we are 100% certain which may just be the day she makes her entrance into the world!
Second Trimester Workout: I have always been active and working out is my time to unwind and destress. Although, this pregnancy really put me through a whirlwind. I did not have as much energy this time around, but I did my best to stay as active as possible Whether it was walking in the park, cleaning ( I typically do over 10k steps when I clean our house, and to me thats a workout) and the occasional gym session. I try very hard to make it to the gym two times a week to do around 45 minutes of light weights and cardio. I have also been loving this program that you can do from literally anywhere! They also have pregnancy workouts, which have been my go to!
Pregnancy Skincare: My Skin typically tends to be on the more oily side, but thankfully with pregnancy my skin really tends to even out. I have tried so many facial products in hopes to find the right one and I have really been loving this line of skincare from Estee Lauder! I have to admit my skincare routine has not always been the best, but I am working hard to improve this! Taking care of your skin is super important and should not be neglected. I absolutely love this night serum and can tell a major difference when I wake up in the mornings.
Birth Worries/Plan: Hospital for sure! I’m too much of a worry wart and feel the best place for me is the hospital! I have a feeling she may come fast! with my first pregnancy, I was almost 9 CM dilated when I got to the hospital and just made it in time for my epidural! I do intend on getting another epidural because that pain was like NO OTHER!!! I have so much respect for mothers out there that have all natural births!!
Okay, This was a long post and if you made it to the end THANK YOU for reading!! If you are not following me on my other socials I would love to have you there as well! I share a lot of daily fashion finds, sales and just life in general! Be sure to check out my instagram to enter the monthly giveaway!
I hope this was helpful for other expecting mamas out there. If you are expecting I would Love to know how far along you are and when you are due!?
Its been a minute since I last blogged. If I am being honest, this third trimester has really been tough! I do not remember this at all with my first pregnancy, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! So, with that being said I wanted to share my top 3 Tips on staying motivated during pregnancy! I often get questions on how I stay motivated with juggling motherhood, work and just life in general. Trust me, most days I want to stay in bed in my pajamas, but when you have a toddler to chase after and a bills to pay… you find a way!
First, before we jump in, I wanted to share this must have dress from Pink Blush Maternity. I was so excited when they reached out to me to partner with them because I absolutely LOVE their clothes! They have everything from maternity, to non-maternity, kids clothing, and the BEST delivery gowns! I will for sure be purchasing mine from them! I am loving this one and one!
I love a simple black and white stripped dress like this one from Pink Blush Maternity, because there are so many ways you can choose to style it! The material of this Dress is beyond soft and does not hug the body to tight. This is actually a non maternity dress. I just sized up one from my normal pre pregnancy size. If you are new to following me, I typically don’t purchase to many maternity clothing items as I like the fit better of non maternity and just sizing up one. That way I can also style them post-pregnancy, Win-win 🙂 But if you prefer maternity fit, this dress also comes in maternity here
This dress from Pink Blush is perfect from taking it day to night and there are endless styling options with this must have dress!
With that being said, one way I Like to stay motivated is by feeling put together, Even if that means picking out a cute outfit for the day, or my hair and makeup being done. If I can accomplish all three, that is a huge win for me. I can 100% understand the days you just do not feel like you have the energy, especially when pregnant! But I can say, if I feel put together that day, I tend to get so much more accomplished.
second tip: Create a to do list. I often flip back and fourth going old school ( pen and paper to do list) and creating a list on my phone with reminders! I love using a planner like this one as well, to keep all my task, appointments, goals etc. in one place. Pregnancy brain is a real thing, and I never believed it until I was pregnant! The more reminders I have the better! I love being able to cross things off my list, something about seeing the list dwindle down gives me complete satisfaction. Give it a try and let me know if you start getting that same feeling! If I don’t write it down, often it does not get done. Life is so hectic these days, unexpected things pop up and you get side tracked ( guilty) and you just honestly forget. If you write it down on paper or put it in your phone with a reminder, most likely It will get done! Even if its not the entire to do list, accomplishing a few items off your list will feel like a huge milestone!
Third tip: Do something that makes you happy! Whether it be going for a walk, getting your nails done, going to lunch with some girlfriends, make time to do it! As mentioned, life just gets in the way and we often forget to do things for ourself. I’ve noticed when I can carve out a little time to see friends or just have some “alone time” I feel rejuvenated to keep pushing along and gives me that little extra boost of motivation to cross off that next item on my to do list! If you have toddlers, you understand even going to the bathroom in piece for a few minutes is considered alone time ( keeping it real). So make sure you take even a few minutes each day to do something for you, no matter how big or small that something may be!
I hope these tips give you all a little bit of inspiration and motivation to go out there and accomplish that one thing you have been putting off, because we all do it, and I’m the first one to confess this! I would love to know how you all stay motivated and inspired, share your tips down below! Whether you are a mother or not, it does not matter, we could all use the extra motivation and pat on the back to know we are all just giving it our best, and thats all we can do!
Thank you so much for Pink Blush Maternity for gifting this dress and sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own.

Animal print is really on trend this fall!

Look 3: Okay where are all my teachers, look no further! You NEED this entire look! I snagged this whole outfit and can’t wait to wear it! I love that each piece can be worn so many different ways. Pair this cardigan with this lace trim cami and distressed jeans and or wear this chambray dress on its own with these must have booties! I love a great chambray dress for fall, they can be styled so many different way! The options are endless!! I am also loving this look for family photos!!
